Noel Gallagher solo concerts announced
Monday 01 February 2010
Noel Gallagher's only two concerts planned for this year have been announced as part of a string of charity gigs climaxing with a performance of Quadrophenia by The Who.
Suede, JLS, Arctic Monkeys, The Specials and Depeche Mode are also among the "stellar" line-up raising cash for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
The 10-night season, taking place between February and March, celebrates the charity's 10th year of music and comedy at London's Royal Albert Hall.
Following Depeche Mode's sold-out gig on February 17, rockers Them Crooked Vultures will kick off nine consecutive nights starting on March 22. The week will continue with a comedy night featuring Jimmy Carr, Rhod Gilbert and Noel Fielding.
The following day, Brit Pop pioneers Suede will re-form for one night only for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Ex-Oasis star Noel will then play what organisers promised will be an "unforgettable" two-night run.
Arctic Monkeys will play at the venue for the first time and the charity is also hosting its first ever pop night, headlined by X Factor runners-up turned Mobo winners JLS.
The Shockwaves NME Awards Big Gig features ska legends The Specials, who will receive NME's outstanding contribution award this year. NME has renamed the award the Teenage Cancer Trust outstanding contribution.
The 10-night spectacular will reach its grand finale with The Who's performance of Quadrophenia, which frequently features on "greatest album of all time" lists. Who singer Roger Daltrey, patron of Teenage Cancer Trust, said: "When The Who first got together in 2000 to raise money for this brilliant charity, I had no idea we'd achieve so much from these shows."
Tickets go on sale on Friday. For more information go to www.teenagecancertrust.org.
